Beatrice BRandon/URGENT #unitedkingdom

alfredlouise <alfredlouise@...>
 

Dear Genners,
I am urgently trying to find some information for a friend's dying
grandmother. Time Is of the essence.
I need to find the place and proof of birth and parentage of Beatrice Bertha
Ruth Brandon.
In the 1881 census, June Solntseff kindly found her for me. She and her
sister Inez were boarders at Lady Bank Marsh Street, Walthamstow. I wonder
if that was some kind of school.
Her father had a plantation in St. Elizabeth, Black River , Jamaica, soif
anyone knows about the Brandons in Jamaica at that time, I would be grateful
for information. Shelter went to Jamaica where she married William Lamb.
They had one child born in Jamaica and thenmoved to S. Africa. It is known
that about 1877 the familylived in High Street Kensington.
Thankyou in advance for help, Louise (Goldschmidt) London

MODERATOR NOTE: There are 3 people searching the name Brandon in Jamaica.
You can find them by going to www.jewishgen.org/jgff and using Brandon as
standard search term and Jamaica as country!

SITE CITE - Geographical resources - German place names and much more #germany

Roger Lustig <trovato@...>
 

It would seem that I've been volunteered. That's fine--but I'd like
your help.

Many of us have a few bookmarks for sites that give information about
what a particular where was called back when. Please send me any that
you think the list should know about! (Mail to julierog@ix.netcom.com
please.) Short descriptions of the contents would be welcomed, along
with any assessments of the strengths and weaknesses of the site.

Here are a few to get the ball rolling:

http://www.mmhs.org/faq/faq.htm

-- that's right, the Manitoba Mennonite
Historical Society. (If nothing else, we owe these folks a debt for
making *us* feel less obscure!) The FAQ main page has two excellent
maps: Germany in 1871, Germany in 1990. Then there's a whole slew of
regional FAQs that give information about Kreis (county) organization at
various times, administrative court districts, etc., etc.

http://www.genealogienetz.de/reg/regio.htm

has the same maps, and a great deal more information, most of which is
available in English and German. This is probably the one site that
everyone here should bookmark.

Regions are not all treated with the same level of detail--for instance,
Silesia has a good bilingual (German/Polish) list of all towns, but there's
nothing comparable for Brandenburg (yet).

http://www.library.wisc.edu/etext/ravenstein/#Introduction

is a good atlas, especially if your calendar says 1883.

OK--your turn! Again, please email any suggestions to

julierog@ix.netcom.com

Roger Lustig Princeton, NJ julierog@ix.netcom.com

MODERATOR NOTE: I've looked at the 3 websites mentioned above and each of
them contains a wealth of information on names of places - cities, towns,
regions, former city states etc.

There is also much on the changing borders of Germany and its states,
kingdoms and such. Bookmarks for these are certainly in order for any
serious genealogy researcher with roots in Germany. Thanks to Roger.

JABLUSZKO family of Ciechanow #ciechanow #poland

A J <genealicej@...>
 

Is there anybody out there researching the JABLUSZKO family of Ciechanow? I
found this surname on the list of civil Jewish records for Ciechanow and it
struck me this could be the origin of my JOSEPHS/
YUBLO(F)SKY/YABLOFSKY/YABLISKY surnames.

It certainly seems the nearest name to the name which my Ciechanow-born
grandfather's elder half brother kept, YUBLOSKY. When my Ciechanow born
great uncle applied for British naturalization, he was told by the lawyer to
say his name was JABLOWSKI. It seems to me the lawyer may have mistakenly
thought the "f" in the name was the same as "w" and "v" and therefore the
original name was JABLOWSKI. My great uncle told the authorities that he had
never used this surname.

What do others think? Does this seem like a reasonably guess, as I can't
find any YUBLO(F)SKY, YABLOFSKY or YABLISKY surnames >from my research so
far.

Re: R' Israel EYBESCHUETZ (? - 1811) #rabbinic

Tom Brøndsted <tom@...>
 

For a couple of years ago I had contact with a EYBESCHUETZ-researcher
looking for a connection between the famous Rabbi Jonathan Eybeschütz
of Hamburg and the Danish winedealer Aron EIBESCHÜTZ. As far as I
remember he concluded that both come >from the same place in Mähren
(Germany). Aron _may_ be a nephew of Jonathan. The tombstone of Aron
EIBESCHÜTZ in Copenhagen (Møllegade) is well preserved but there are
no indication of who his parents were.

According to the researcher mentioned above, Aron Eibeschütz' wife
Sara (Serle) Levi (ca. 1740-1820) is likely to be the daughter of
Moses Marcus Levy of Fredericia - and he _may_ be a son of Rabbi
Moses Ber ROTHENBURG of Hamburg, the predecessor of Jonathan
Eybeschütz.

Have a look at
http://www.brondsted.dk/~tom/genealogi/rothenbg.htm
- note [2] at the bottom.

Personally, I am sceptical as regards this genealogy.

Seeking: Willie PRIMHAK (England)and Tillie COHEN #general

Hello,

In seeking living descendants of Israel Ber (Berel) Finklestein Cohen
and wife Tatzy, I am tracking a Willie PRIMHAK who married Tillie Cohen
and ran a pub in North London. They would have been born around the
beginning of this century. Truly hoping to uncover some of their
descendants.

Is this a rotten thing to do ?"

Actually, no. It's very likely that Sarah 2 was named after a different,
albeit deceased Sarah.

I had a similar problem, naming my children after their paternal relatives
when I had siblings with the same name. There is no problem with this, but I
asked my siblings permission, explaining the situation, to be polite. They
were thrilled.

Think of it this way...I have 12 children, and there are only so many family
names to use. The patriarchal and matriarchal names are very common for
Jews. If one wants to follow the tradition of naming after the deceased,
they limit the number of available names.
